There was a time parts of Cleveland looked like that. That was back in the days when Cleveland had a thriving middle class and wasn't dead broke.

When I was a little boy, I'd remember red, copper colored dust on the window sills and the cars outside.  South Buffalo, New York on the shores of Lake Erie.

Bethlehem Steel...Republic Steel...Becco Chemical...Carborundum.   They were all going 24/7

Driving into Cleveland, the place used to stink. I mean it smelled bad!

But it had neighborhoods, and people working, and things being built.

There's no smell in Cleveland these days. No money, no middle class, but the air is clear.

When all the steel mills were fully going up North people said they didn't have sinus infections because of something the kaisers blew out. Men had liquid lunches and June was waiting dinner in a dress after volunteering to be the school nurse for the day.

When I was 'bad', my older cousin and my grandmother threatened to send me to Father Baker's.

Back then they actual dialed a few numbers while my lip quivered.....the dirty scoundrels.   :laugh:

I successfully avoided being committed to a home for juvenile delinquents as my main achievement in my teens growing up in WNY

The US, and by extension the other allied powers, must have known about this lake during the Cold War.

I am sure they have known through satellite overflights.

Don't give up hope!  Obama has plenty of time left to make it possible. :thud:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
